Sanborn Platform for Indoor Mapping (SPIN)

The Sanborn Platform for Indoor Mapping (SPIN) is a semi-autonomous mobile robotic platform designed exclusively for indoor mapping applications. By utilizing the recent advances made in a variety of 3D technologies including laser scanning, photogrammetry and computer vision, and the state-of-the-art approaches used in robotics, SPIN is a leap forward in accurately mapping the building interiors. SPIN is a compact, easy-to-operate and self-navigating system which generates pre-registered spatial data in near real-time.

With SPIN you can:
  • Generate 2D floor plans
  • Create 3D models of indoor environments
  • Catalog inventory and / or assets

Visit the SPIN page for more detailed information and technical specifications.

Sanborn 3D Stacking Plans

Sanborn 3D Interactive Stacking Plans are customized property information maps, quickly created from your floorplan pdf's, property photos, and tenant information. The web-based 3D Stacking Plans Viewer suite of tools allows users to rotate, zoom, and adjust the opacity of the structure’s exterior walls, enabling easy visual analysis of every floor and space. Building information fields can be customized to display information specific to each floor, occupant, office, etc. In addition, the interactive floorplan model can be color-coded by any number of customizable client-defined classes or categories.
